APL to Launch India Pakistan Europe Service

Singapore-based container shipping company APL plans to set up a new weekly service – the India Pakistan Europe (IPE) Service, that will connect India and Pakistan to major ports in Europe starting from October.

The IPE service will call the ports of Port Qasim (Pakistan), Nhava Sheva, Hazira, Mundra (India), Jeddah (Saudi Arabia), Djibouti (Djibouti), Southampton (UK), Rotterdam (Netherlands), Antwerp (Belgium), Felixstowe (UK) and Le Havre (France).

“Europe is a premier trading partner and a major export market of South Asian countries. It is opportune that we expand our service coverage in Asia-Europe through the new IPE service, directly linking the major economies of India and Pakistan to Europe,” Eric Eng, APL Head of Asia Europe Trade, said.

First sailing of the IPE Eastbound service will commence on October 1, 2016,  from Southampton.

First sailing of the Westbound service is scheduled for October 4, 2016, from Port Qasim.
